SIS Voices Concerns Regarding Negative Impact of CMS Proposed Rule Implementation

Monday, September 10, 2018  
If the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) 2019 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule Proposed Rule is implemented, continued patient access to beneficial interventional treatments will be at risk.

On September 10, 2018, SIS issued comments to CMS specifically addressing significant concerns relative to the new and revised neurostimulator services CPT code set; the streamlining of Evaluation & Management Guidelines; and aspects of the Quality Payment Program, such as the Meaningful Measures Initiative Framework, virtual groups, topped out measures, and decisions related to certified EHR technology.

SIS continues to monitor CMS rule-making activities to comment on behalf of interventional spine care physicians and their patients.
